Gemini New Moon 2016-06-04 (Grand Cross, Grand Trine, and Rosetta)

We are writing this post a few hours in hindsight, a bit more than four hours after perfection.  We note that the annual Sun Square Jupiter aspect perfected earlier today.  (We will minimize duplication of the commentary on the earlier aspect.)

This is a dynamic New Moon (NM) and an important one, and much has been written by others because of the presence of a Grand Cross (GC).  This is a longer term GC which involves outer planets (notably Saturn, Neptune, and Jupiter), but the NM itself is (1) conjunct Venus and (2) forms the fourth leg of the GC.  Grand Crosses are relatively rare even when using asteroids (Chiron, Juno, Pallas, Vesta, and Ceres as well as others such as Hygeia and Astraea) or calculated points (North Node, South Node, Vertex, and so forth).  But this GC uses “real” planets, and that, by itself, is enough to make it a popular subject of discussion, interpretation, and speculation.

Maybe even more notable is that it is a mutable GC, and these invariably signify endings of some kind.  With a NM near the end of the Mecury Retrograde shadow, after the Direct Station, all are seeking to move forward and launch new projects.  AND you *CAN* do that, but these projects are more in the order of reaping what you have sewn.  Think of these projects as specifically being built on the past and what you have accomplished (or failed to accomplish).  This is your window to take stock and act accordingly.

And, on the outside chance you are uncertain about that, let me be clear: the upcoming Full Moon has a CARDINAL Grand Cross in it, and, oddly, that is about beginnings.  It tells us that the “cleanup period” between that Full Moon and the next New Moon is all about launching truly new projects.  (I am NOT saying you should launch during a waning moon.  I AM saying it is time you consider the option of COMPLETELY starting your life from the ground up and, absent that, questioning every assumption in your life about how things “have to be” with an eye to junking what is not working for you any more and doing things that are TRULY NEW in the most fundamental way possible.  This is your chance to TRULY change the train you are on.)

Whether all of us realize it or not, we are undergoing a large scale shift that is operating in many areas of our lives.  The current state of affairs of the United States Presidential election reflects that.  People feel strongly.  I will avoid becoming too political here, as I ordinarily avoid that, but many people object to the political system as it stands, and I mean many conservative people object as well as the more obvious liberal objections seeking “change.”  But what we see as election politics reflects deeper and more profound problems and issues.  And, they are not just in the United States.  This is a global phenomenon.

The late Jonathon Cainer, an astrologer whose work I followed, wrote of this a number of times when he spoke of the “bell” (Uranus Square Pluto) that would “toll seven times.”  Cainer was both a poet and a giant (as well as a bit of a character), and his voice will be missed.  (But we are happy that Oscar appears to be carrying the torch now.)  Jonathon Cainer stressed the point repeatedly: Uranus Square Pluto will bring HUGE global changes beyond anything we have seen (at least in recent generations if “ever”).  I agree.

By itself, that would be enough, and nothing more need be said.  But the fact is that we have an amazing series of patterns coming in the next few months starting now (and with the upcoming Full Moon).  Those of you who are astrologers know what I am talking about.  I see more of you writing about patterns this year, and I strongly suspect at least some of you have looked at certain pages I put up in late 2015, such as Rare and Absent Patterns in 2016 and, more generally, the 2016 Overview.  Whether or not you are an astrologer, if you like to do advanced planning to organize your life, then I suspect you should peek at those pages.

We also recommend you compare the Gemini New Moon of 2015 (last year) and the Taurus New MooooN of a month ago.  And by “compare,” I do not mean just peek at my pages.  Pull out your journal (you know the one, the one I recommend you keep, and, yes, I am chastising you like your mother would if you are not doing it, especially after telling you about FutureMe) and compare this month to last month, this month this year to this month last year.  You reap what you sew, but there MUST be some opportunity there.  This New Moon tells us that.  You must have “eyes to see.”

That said, and keeping in mind just how powerful the upcoming Full Moon / Solstice will be, we present the chart for the Gemini New Moon of 2016 with the Mutable Grand Cross (MGC):

In case you were not already aware, an AMAZING number of squares are present in this chart.  Children born at this time will be nothing short of revolutionary.  I knew a woman, deceased within the past few months, who was born with a similar birth chart.  She was the most gifted numerologist I ever met (I confess, I simply have NO idea how Numerology works, but she was completely accurate), and she had a greater ability to anger people (most people, even delicate ones, said “p*ss off” people) than almost anyone else I knew. She made people ANGRY with her criticism!  I tolerated her barbs because I really liked her (and I knew she liked me), but most did not.  Nevertheless, she was a very prosperous businesswoman here in Dallas, and all those squares left an impression on me.  (And, at least from my vantage point, she will be missed.  I liked her.)  This chart looks like that, but maybe even MORE squares than she had!

Interpret that however you choose.  As mentioned earlier, many others have written interpretations of this:

BUT, we would like to add that the Grand Cross is NOT the only pattern in this chart.  It is clearly the most striking of the patterns, but it is NOT the ONLY pattern.  We also have a Grand Earth Trine (opportunity!) and a Rosetta (alliances, but typically short-lived and a risk of treachery later).  We present the chart for the Grand Earth Trine (Pluto, Jupiter, Mercury) first.  We also note that Grand Water Trines are associated with the opportunity to make quite a bit of money, but we think this Grand Earth Trine (with Jupiter and Pluto involved) has that same ability, maybe even more so.  The next two weeks could be a rather large “money maker” for those with “eyes to see.”  Here is the chart:

2016-06-04 New Moon (Grand Trines)

Please do note that the North Node is involved in this Grand Trine, also, and that is all about “Karma” (again, reaping what you have sewn) as well as “hard work.”

Finally, we have the Rosetta.  Let us be clear: a Rosetta can accomplish a huge amount of work in a short time.  But the relationships are short-lived, and the potential for treachery exists.  We also note that one leg of the Grand Earth Trine is embedded in this Rosetta.  Here is the chart:

2016-06-04 New Moon (Rosetta)

The next two weeks will gave gotcha and glitches associated with the Grand Cross.  And you can focus on those, or you can focus on the opportunity that will come to you.  The choice is yours.

Sun Square Jupiter 2016-06-04 (Kite + Grand Cross + Rosetta)

This aspect last perfected on December 14, 2015. Ordinarily, this aspect perfects twice a year, but only perfects once in 2016. A Kite (opportunity), a Grand Cross (very rare) and a Rosetta (issues with the alliances you form) are all present. We note that the Grand Cross is a longer term pattern here, and it involves Sun, Jupiter, Neptune, and Saturn.

Here is the chart for perfection of Sun Square Jupiter, filtered for the Kite:

Wednesday February 10th

For many people this is either a day of rest or a routine workday without disruption.  Venus trines Jupiter, and this is one of the ultimate “feel good” aspects.  You might overeat or spend too much money or overindulge in some other way.  That is the main “danger” for most people.  Sun is quincunx Jupiter, so misunderstandings might occur (double check or defer any contract that you might sign).  But, for most people, it is mostly a good day.  Enjoy if you can.

Wednesday January 27th 2016

Wednesday is similar to Tuesday: a very lunar day with the Moon in Virgo.  The morning starts as a straightforward workday followed by a glitch or two here or there.  Once past these we have smooth sailing into the evening.  An opportunity may come to you late Wednesday afternoon; seize it.  To be sure, it will require work, and it may not be entirely straightforward.  It will not be a HUGE opporunity but something shorter term.  Still, it is likely to be worthy of pursuit.  Moon turns v/c at 6:11 PM CST, so fully seize the opportunity before then (and lock it in) or forgo it altogether and spend the evening cleaning house.

An early morning BiSeptile between Mars and Uranus brings a bit of karma in odd interactions with others.  We may have anger and explosive reactions, but invariably (in most cases) this brings more harm than good.  Channeling that some energy / emotions into solutions rather than outbursts is more helpful, but not everyone is capable of that.

After the Moon moves v/c 6:10 PM CST, Sun perfects a sesquiquadrate to Jupiter.  We feel a sense of urgency, but our actions may not produce the results we expect if any at all.  A re-do will likely be later tomorrow or at some later point.  A quiet evening of meditation and planning is a better use of your time.

Sun Trine Jupiter 2016-01-12

Sun Trine Jupiter 2016-01-12

We should talk.  Sun Trine Jupiter is typically considered a benevolent aspect.  (We note that modern astrologers typically see Jupiter as a benefic whereas traditionalists tend to consider it a malefic.  In any case, opinions vary.  We consider it a benefic, meaning that it confers benefit.  In reality, it is an “amplifier” that brings more of whatever it is pointed towards.)

That said, a few considerations are worth noting.  First, Mercury is retrograde.  This is not necessarily “bad,” but it does require an attention to detail.  It is most useful for resurrect projects previously on hold, or double checking details, proofreading, or editing.

Next, Jupiter is, itself, retrograde.  While Mercury Retrograde is well understood (we experience it several times a year), this is not as true with Jupiter Retrograde.  It occurs less frequently and lasts longer.  It is more subtle.  But, as so many others do, we will give you the standard textbook treatment of the topic: Jupiter Retrograde involves problems or revisiting issues involving the legal system, higher education, or “long distance travel.”  (What is “long distance travel”?  If you rarely range more than 10 to 15 miles from home, then “long distance travel” might involve a trip to a nearby city or area a few hundred miles away.  If you are a long distance trucker who ranges much of the continent, then it may involve an overseas trip.)  In general, interpreting outer planet retrogrades is tricky because of the longer durations of the retrogrades.  They tend to govern generations more than individuals.

Additionally, Jupiter is in Virgo.  Per the traditionalists, this means it is in “detriment.”  We agree that, in some cases, this is worth noting.  We think it is worth noting here.

We might add that Capricorn is not a particularly strong placement for the Sun.

So, we advise caution with this particular Sun Trine Jupiter aspect.  This tends to be a “nose to the grindstone” aspect.  The Sun is ordinarily bright and, well, sunny.  Jupiter can be downright gleeful.  (OK, we know Stalin was a Sagittarius.  But he was the exception that tended to prove the rule.  Think Frank Sinatra instead.  He tended to be a bit more upbeat most of the time.  “My Way” is a very Jupiter song.)  In these placements, this is all about work and getting things done.  Do your homework and stick to business most of the day (you can play some, also, but get the important things done).

We also note that what you do, or do not, get done will come back in some form of “karma” on or about January 27th, after Mercury is direct and when Sun Sesquiquadrates Jupiter.  Your decisions, and actions, matter today.

Wednesday January 13th 2016

Wednesday is complex.  The good news is that the Sun trines Jupiter, an annual aspect that almost always confers benefit (unless you “overdo” it).  (Traditionally, Jupiter is a “malefic” (bad) though many modern astrologers (including myself) count it as a “benefic” (good).  Why the dispute?  It is an AMPLIFIER.  Jupiter makes “things” “big,” such as Powerball winnings.  It makes the bad worse and the good better.  Like big Powerball winnings, the result you get depends on where you point it and how you use it.)  However, we do note that the best use of this particular aspect on this date is “getting things done.”

The bad news is the Venus Squares Chiron.  Issues involving either (a) finances + education or (b) the physical body and the pain of recovery will rise to the surface.  (As always with Chiron, health, or education, or both, will likely become the focus of the day.)

A potpourri of lunar aspects color the day, squares and trines alike, but most of the day in the western hemisphere (and the later part of the day into the early morning hours of Thursday in UK / EU) is colored by a bracketing of the window by Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune at the beginning 7:17 AM CST and near the end by Moon in Pisces conjunct Chiron 12:22 AM CST on Thursday.  BOTH of these emphasize the “healthcare” aspect of the day, and the first throws into the mix a need to help those less fortunate than ourselves along with a risk from scammers.  (Best to donate anonymously to well known causes that you thoroughly understand.  Please do not throw money to criminals.)  For some people, particularly students about to begin a new semester, this day is a turning point.

And just in case you might somehow miss the “message” of the previous paragraph, Sun also Semisquares Neptune, producing a significant sense of urgency to address these issues immediately, whatever they may be.

Sun Square Jupiter 2015-12-14 (Thor’s Hammer)

Sun Square Jupiter 2015-12-14 (Thor’s Hammer)

Perfection of this aspect co-occurs with Mercury Sextile Neptune on this date. This can be a very fun day or a very dangerous day or both. Sun Square Jupiter tends to “overdo it,” and the question becomes what is “it.” Thor’s Hammer is associated with a sense of urgency and the ability to “get things done” in its best form, but easily degenerates into anger, violence, and explosions in the low form. Mercury Sextile Neptune is excellent for artists in all of the Muses, including writers particularly of lyrics, poetry, and similar, but it is terrible for large purchases and long term committments.

Given an option, make this a “fun day.” If you have any artistic tendencies at all, then focus on those. Avoid dangerous people and dangerous situations, and that includes avoiding being a dangerous person yourself.

We note that this is another “longer term” Thor’s Hammer affecting a period of days or weeks and not just the perfection of this particular aspect.

Here is the chart for perfection of Sun Square Jupiter, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

If you are a religious person, this is a very good day to “get in touch with” your spiritual side. For some people we want to make this explicit: that does NOT mean harming other living creatures of any kind. (We will make an exception if you need to eat plants to survive.)  Both Jupiter and Neptune are associated with religion and spirituality, so a great deal of potential exists to make progress in those areas today.  (Please use that potential wisely.)

For those interested in other dates upon which this aspect perfects, here is a list from 2000 to 2030.  (This may help with both retrospective reviews and advanced planning.)  For those who are reading this contemporaneously, you will want to make a note to review this post (and your personal notes on your life at this time) in late May (about May 27th of 2017) for the upcoming June 4th of 2017 perfection.  One way to do this is to use FutureMe.
